Fine Tuning the camp experience ~ Little River Inn Rug Camp IV

Barbara Benner suggested we should have our group photo in the garden… Yes!

Folks came from near and far; Little River Inn Rug Camp was starting to get known. Nancy Miller Quigley is a popular teacher and helped me promote the new little camp. Ann Taylor taught my other class, but let me know it would be her last; “Give some other teachers a chance.”, she said. Rug Art Supplies was there as our store again, but with new owners; Shelley Flannery & Barbara Hanson.

Shelley and Barbara put a lot of creative energy into their store, and seem to have everything and anything a rug hooker could desire. The store is no longer running, as life got complicated for our 2 wonderful store keeps.

I replaced the dividing panels between the 2 classes with a couple of tables and chairs. The tables served as extra space during classes for spreading out projects with the teacher and mini-classes and events after regular class time.

Barbara Hanson and Shelley Flannery, team taught and shared the magic of needle felting. The possibilities are curiously fun and appreciated by all.

Nancy Miller Quigley presented a class to make folded roses to attach to scissor fobs.

Nancy is wearing her folded-rose scissor-fob; the retracting fob keeps the scissors handy. The class was popular; who can resist a dip-dyed rose?

My room was in the northern annex with a fireplace and a ‘filtered view’ of the ocean and inlet. I love looking through the pine trees and watching the waves.

The local seagulls come by and check out the porches, just in case there is something good to eat. I don’t share my Chardonnay with them… ha! but the view and ambiance is there for us all.
